[ applause ] let's deal with some of the comments that secretary clinton made. and by the way, yoyoknow, sometimes there's a lot of drama here. i've known secretary clinton for 25 years and respect her very much. here is the issue. every major country on earth, whether it's the uk, whether it's france, whether it's canada, has managed to provide health care to all people as a right and they are spending significantly less per capita on health care than we are. so i di not accept the belief that t united states of america can't do that. i do not accept the belief that the united states of america and our government can't stand up to the rip-offs of the armaceutical industrtr which charge us by far the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs.

accounts of top aides to his successor, condoleezza re. >> most of them i think are pretty benign.n. >> repororr: like clinton, powell exclusively used a personal account as secretary of state, though he e-mailed far less often. in a statement today he said the the two e-mails in question re -- the clinton campaign happily sided with him. press secretary brian fallon. >> this is an example of over- classification run amok. >> reporter: the state department announced l lt week that 22 of clinton's e-mails which sat on her private server for years are being reclassified as top secret, one of the highest levels of classification, higher than the secret and confidential designations given to the powell and rice e-mails. more than 1,500 clinton e-mails have already been put in those categories.
